"This is the most tragic situation that you can imagine. The support from Rotary and the world has really stepped up to help and thank you for it." Past District 7020 Governor and Haiti District Coordinator Dick McCombe
The Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund, a donor advised fund within The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, has been established to streamline the flow of contributions from Rotarians looking to assist victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The fund will be directed by the account holders listed below. The account holders will work with local Rotary clubs and districts, as well as emergency relief agencies, to meet the most pressing needs of people in affected areas. Account holders will make grant recommendations after consulting with District 7020 Governor Errol Alberga or his designee. Funds will be used in the relief effort and for projects providing longer-term support and development (e.g. funding for Rotary Foundation Matching Grant projects).
